Magazine review: Scale Aircraft Modelling Vol.34 #12 (Feb. 2013)

I haven’t gotten around to reviewing a SAM in a while.  My bad.  This issue has several items of interest for the 72nd modeler.  There is a review of the Meng Ki-98 and the Special Hobby FF-1 in 72nd scale.  Both are excellent, with the Meng build is particularly nice.

In addition there is a build article with history of the new Special Hobby Vautour in Israeli markings.  This article is especially commendable for the history around the aircraft built in the article.  There are several nice non-72nd scale articles and a brief history of the F8F in Indochina.  Unfortunately, this particular article suffers from what appears to be some awkward phrasings that I suspect result from it being translated from another language.

While SAM is still too expensive in my opinion ($13), it is still the commercial magazine I enjoy the most.  Buy it.
